I don't mind the heat so much as the humidity. I don't know how you guys from the south do it.It's been in the upper 80's and lower 90's with the dew point around 70.

We stay in the house or under a tree! Work early mornings and late afternoons if we have to do something outside. Thats how I do it anyway. These guys that work outside in the nurserys all day just seem to become accustom to it. Lots of water.

The last day we had in the 80's was July 2nd. It did cool off last weekend for the picnic...got into the low to mid 90's. I'd love to have some 80 degree days....

Humidity might actually slow down certain animals, making them easier targets.
